DISCLAIMER: I HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH SOME BUT NOT ALL PRODUCTS LISTED BELOW. SOME CAME RECOMMENDED FROM MOMS IN THE MRS.NIPPLE COMMUNITY + I FOUND OTHERS. I HAVE RESEARCHED EACH PRODUCT + FEEL THEY WOULD BE GREAT ADDITIONS TO YOUR BEACH GEAR!
We brought Charlie to Nantucket for his first beach trip. THIS tent was small enough to fly with, easy to fold, + held up on a pretty windy beach. Since Charlie was crawling + very fast at 10 months old so it was hard to keep him in the tent. I threw in a few toys + he had lunch in the tent but other than those times I was chasing him around. If I had a do-over I would have brought THIS. I was pregnant + could have used some R + R. The pop in play came highly recommended from many moms in the Mrs.Nipple community. A few said the top would fly off. You could place a large umbrella next to the pop in play OR place the pop in play in a large tent if you have the same issue.
THIS tent came highly recommended from moms with young babies. It’s perfect for beach naps, offers protection from the sun, + zips closed. For babies that are pre crawlers or just started crawling this would be my pick! It’s a small tent.
If you are looking for a small tent with a pool THIS would work. Just make sure to put away when the baby is not using the pool feature as it could blow away.
Need a larger tent? My two picks are THIS + THIS. I had the Wolfwise tent + I really liked it but I had so much trouble closing it. The Pacific Breeze tent came highly recommended + with 3k positive reviews it seems like you can’t go wrong.
Which ever tent works best for you I highly recommend finding videos on YouTube around how to close down each tent + practice before you get to the beach.
I feel like there’s opportunity in the beach market for a good chair. These were the number one recommended + I would agree. My picks are THIS ONE + THIS ONE . Want an easy beach travel chair for the babes. THIS one is great.
THIS option looks so cool + is super innovative! My kind of baby product. For a more traditional option THIS had great reviews. THIS one could be a great option for your home!
I love Beauty Counter sunscreen. With two redheads it’s never failed me + it’s made with ingredients I can trust. It comes in three different forms. My favorites are THIS + THIS for the body + THIS for the face.
Bathing suits, hats, + towels. I’ve always shopped at H&M for all of it! Charlie wore the suit I bought him during his first summer today + it still looks great. You can find all my picks below.
I Love THESE! I have them for both the boys + they pretty much have not stayed on for more than 2 seconds. GOOD LUCK :)
SWIMMIES for the pool
We use THIS puddle jumper but you can’t take your eyes of your kids when they are wearing them. They do not protect your kids 100 percent from drowning so it’s still important to keep a careful watch. I also have THIS cover for them which I LOVE. THIS also was recommended from a few moms.
I don’t have any experience with wagons, but these all come highly recommended. THIS one for a splurge + THIS + THIS for two other great options.
My go-to are THESE but the boys have very wide feet so THIS version will work if your kids feet are wide.
I found THIS one as an awesome option for sand proof beach trip + I fell in love with THIS one for its size even though it’s not waterproof (comes in 3 colors). My friend was on a boat with me last weekend + jumped on board with THIS bag. I immediately ordered it with a zipper HERE 🙌🏻 but then found THIS one in gray and I’m torn
Check out the ones I added below. They are all part of this very cool modern beach toy line I just found called Quut.
I always bring our Dockatot to the beach for naps + cover it with THIS universal sleep cover.
Use baby powder to get sand off the kiddoes + use THIS as a sand free snack bowl at the beach.
